Today I bring you The Creek Cottage Dream house. It's a house I specifically made for my introverted plant nerd sim and I wanted something where she could be one with nature while totally staying inside figuring out the many secrets Strangeville has! I figured, being in strangeville and making a house for my sim, why not make a cottage in the desert, it's strangeville anyways!

I playtested it myself quite a bit, the only thing that I know has some routing issues is when you want to put plants in the plant pots where the stairs are (so, the open middle bit of the house) but I personally put them there for decoration really. Do feel free to replace those with something that might suit your sim better!

Important (but boring) info bits:
- It uses NO CC! Yay! :D
- Plants are expensive! So sorry for the price not being starter friendly :P
- You really want to use bb.moveobjects with this one.
- Yes I have a plant house issue.

Your cottage is so pretty. I especially like the landscaping and the way you used shadows in the photography. I always try to use shadows as well because I think it can add drama to your photos and looks so nice. Well done!

Can't add anything new. Totally agree with staralien7. TS4 has most realistic sun effects! It's beautiful!

The sunken atrium is such a beautiful feature in this build.

Thank you! <3 The Atrium is also my favourite bit (as is it for my sim lol)! The routing can be a bit annoying there I will say but personally got the plants there to work with Moveobjects. Funnily just when I was going to upload it I noticed that I forgot the bathroom so hopefully that doesn't look to random. But indeed it's a great house to take pictures of and in!
